US doctors have called an effective means of maintaining muscle tone
Named effective means of prevention of muscular dystrophy and increased physical endurance healthy people.
Doctors from the University of Pennsylvania (USA) called effective means of prevention of muscular dystrophy and increased physical endurance healthy people. Research published in the journal Cell Metabolism
The researchers tested whether helping muscles to cope with wear coenzyme NAD. It is involved in the assimilation of fats and carbohydrates, but its synthesis by DNA damage with age is slowing. In their work, researchers tested the effects on the skeletal muscle of mice precursor of NAD.
It was found that in young mice intramuscular NAD reduction by 85 percent compared to the physiological norm hardly accompanied by a decline in physical activity. At the age of 3-7 months, this led to a disease resembling Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Read more Running strengthens the bones.
Eliminate pathology researchers tried using the drug on the basis rybozydu nicotinamide - a form of vitamin B3, which acts as a dietary precursor of NAD. Nicotinamide able to activate energy metabolism in mitochondria associated with NAD, slow down the natural aging muscle tissue and maintain basic physical activity in mice with muscular dystrophy.
In their work, researchers first demonstrated the effectiveness of drugs and NAD-based precursors for the prevention of muscle degradation. These compounds are currently popular among people engaged in physical culture and sports.
